Strategic Thinking and Problem Solving Webinar

NAHMA Presents Key People Skills for Property Management Staffers
Hosted by Rocky AHMA

In today's complex, fast-paced work environment, it is more challenging than ever to stay ahead of the curve. Everyone is busy; it is easy to fall into a routine of doing what we have always done when trying to complete tasks quickly. In reality, this approach can be like running in place. It can also cause us to overlook opportunities that could help us work more efficiently, become better communicators and achieve better results.

Please join us November 27th for a 90-minute webinar as we explore what it means to become a strategic thinker and take a new approach to anticipating and solving problems.

Topics covered will include:

- Critical thinking
- Making decisions with greater impact
- Understanding how to connect-the-dots

Please join us for this important and timely conversation!
